3. More Energy
Getting active, especially in the morning, is a natural way to boost your energy and increase focus for the rest of your day.
When I wake up in the morning I naturally get a boost in energy, followed by the ability to focus intensely on my work.
It seems like starting your day with something productive leads you to continue doing productive things throughout the day.
Conversely, starting your day with easy dopamine like sleeping in late, watching Netflix or checking Instagram starts your day off on the wrong foot, and before you know it you'll be doing unproductive thing after unproductive thing.
At the end of the day, those with discipline are the ones who end up successful. You may not always be motivated to wake up early and work out, study for your test, reach out to another client etc. but it doesn't matter.
Motivation and discipline are two different things. I'm not always motivated to write blog posts, but I'm disciplined to make it happen regularly, regardless of how I feel. And it's my discipline that's helped this blog from 0 to over 6,000 monthly readers (and counting) within a year.
Likewise, if you want to achieve your fitness goals, you must be disciplined, and there's no better way to discipline yourself than waking up at 4 AM to work out every morning.
5. Better Sleep
Although you will have more energy immediately after your workout and throughout the rest of your day, by the time it comes time for bed, you're definitely going to be exhausted.
Going to bed early is key if you want to wake up early to work out or do anything else for that matter. Even drinking the cheat code to waking up early - EarlyBird - won't help if you're sleep deprived. Trust me, I've tried it.
Considering sleep is one of the most important things for your overall health, exercising in the morning is not only good for you during the workout, it'll also help you fall asleep early (and stay asleep throughout the night.)
